I make a alias like :

alias a 'ct setview myview ;  cd /vobs/project/foo'

but this alias just partly works : it can set view , but it does not take me to /vobs/project/foo . so could you tell me why does this happen ?

Did you forgot a '='? alias a='ct setview myview ; cd /vobs/project/foo'

What about 'ct setview -exec' ?
